I can't wait for Sunday. Supersport will be fun to watch this afternoon, but it is just a tease for superbike. I would like to see Ben win , but I have a soft spot for the Go Show. I think he is extermely talented but can never seem to finish a season healthy. A few years ago while at Loudon I got stuck in a thunderstorm and sought refuge in the Ducati trailer and had the luck of talking with him for about 30 minutes. Great guy talked with me like he was just one of the guys. I heard that can't be said for all the current AMA superstars. In the end I hope it is a safe and exciting race.

Default Barry Sheen Cancer

Off Topic, I know, but for those of us old fart race fans who remember the great Barry Sheen, I felt this was worth posting here. This message was posted on the MotoGP site.



I personally am an agnostic, but I will give Barry my 2 minutes of meditation and reflection.



Wishing you all the best, Barry.

I think this is an ideal place for all of us to Pray for Barry Sheen during his difficult times.



He was the the first choice of FIA to wave the chequered flag at the 2003 Australian F1 grand prix this Sunday 9th. With what kind of emotions do you think he rejected the invitation because of ill healt ?



Barry says - "Stomach and oesophagus are difficult cancers, I don't believe in chemotherapy, I think it's just poison, so I'm not going to get involved in that," he said late last year.



"His health has deteriorated since the Australian motorcycling grand prix (2002 October),"



I call on all of you who see this, just to close your eyes for 2 minutes and pray in you own way for Barry and his family to come out of this situation soon and also to ease all kinds of pains he must be going through at this very moment.



"MAY ALL GODS LOOK AT HIM, TOUCH HIM AND HEAL HIM AS WE WANT HIM AT THE 1st MOTOGP IN JAPAN AND RIGHT THROUGH OUT"



We are with you Barry !!!!!!

God bless you all

Although Ben, Eric and Gobert are the ones I most want to see duke it out, I expect Kurtis, Mat and Aaron will want to play as well. Wouldn't rule out Duhamel either.

Ben Bostrom is one hell of a nice guy and a great rider. I know he had a difficult season across the pond last year, so I wish him special luck back on his home soil.



Off topic. Can we get rid of the "smack back"? It's gone from cute to silly to downright obnoxious.

I'm not enough of an old fart to remember him racing, but I've loved reading his thoughts in Bike every month.



Me, I'm atheist, but what can I say. Damn, Barry, hope that 'no chemo' thing works out for you.
